I also prefer the base wheels for the Limited way more. In fact, I really like the overall looks of the limited over the Laredo. The differences aren't massive, but different enough where it counts.

I know some knock the power lift gate, but it's a huge feature when your hands are full. The only down side is you have to make sure you have your fob out so you can hit the open button. That's where the Ford Explorer almost had me: the foot activated lift gate.

I like the self adjusting driver's seat with easy exit/entry. I can't remember if that's a feature on the Laredo or not.

Having said that, if the Laredo had both the selectable 4 wheel drive and the paddle shifters, I would have been OK with not having those other features.

Re: Laredo VS higher trim levels

Same here...very happy with my 11' Laredo X. About the only option I miss are the memory seats & telescopic steering wheel. Had these on prior vehicle so I know what I'm missing.

I have everything you mentioned. Except the memory seats and the steering wheel paddles. I have all the for wheel drive selections as well, and instead of the paddles It had the auto manual. Essentially the same thing just slap stick, and not sure of any design differences from limited to laredo. They look the same to me

NetworkTV has a 2015. 2014/15 Paddle is standard. The selec-terrain is optional

You have a 13 so it's not comparable

For 2015 that is the case unless (in the case of the Quadratrack selector) you get the Off Road package.

I do remember now I could get the paddles on the Laredo, but the lack of standard select terrain was a deal killer for me.

The body overall is the same, just the trim elements are different. There's more decoration and the ports in front are different.

What's a quadtrack selector?

NetworkTV what engine do you have?

The little knob for selecting how the 4 wheel drive system operates, right behind the shifter on the center console. It also adds the rock crawler low range setting, which the normal "auto" system doesn't offer. Even with the selectable options, the new Ford Explorer only has an "auto-high" system with no low range.

On the Jeep, the models without the select-terrain knob only have the "auto" mode, which is where you would normally keep the knob set in models with it. The knob simply lets you tailor the 4 wheel drive system to the surface you're on, such as rock (with low range and hill descent control options), mud, sand or snow. The low range and hill descent control options can only be used in rock mode.

I have the V6. I don't need a V8 anymore. With the 8 speed transmission, there's more than enough low end torque for my needs with fuel economy at the top end.

If I owned a boat or a camping trailer, I'd probably skip the V8 and go straight to the diesel.

Most of my towing is occasional U-Haul rentals for moving myself to a new place or transporting items too big for the tailgate. A couple of times I've transported my motorcycle to have work done on it, which required it to be trailered.
